DARKNESS and doubt and despair
Vanish at touch of the May!
Song? It inhabits the air;
Love? It bewitches the way.

Ah, if we trust, comes the song,
(Hark!) and the breath of it sweet;
Surer, for waiting so long,
Fairer, for being so fleet.

If we have faith! And we must:
Faith that shall wholly redeem,
Faith that shall hallow the dust,
Faith, the fulfilment of Dream.

Darkness and doubt and despair
Vanish at touch of the May!
Song? It inhabits the air;
Love? It bewitches the way.
